Fables and Proverbs from the Sanskrit, Being the Hitopadesa
Wilkins, Charles (translator)
After spending significant time on the third edition, published in 1888, I am happy to find that I also have three copies of the second edition. The first copy is in the best condition. Its front cover is starting to separate. It has the same green cloth cover and smooth white spine with gold print as one of the copies of the third printing. The cover of the second copy is plain green cloth, with gold lettering on the spine. It belonged to Dweight Edwards Marvin. There are in it frequent pencil lines next to paragraphs. The third copy is covered in gray cloth with no markings or words other than a label reading 265. Its paper is very brittle. Otherwise that book is in good condition. I will keep all three in the collection. See my extensive comments under the third edition.
